The lead is not a standard obituary lead; it is an alternative lead that starts with a quote of a hebrew phrase, "Tikkun olam," which means to mend a broken world. Although the rule of thumb is to never start an article with a quote, this works well because it opens the article in focus of Aelony's will to mend problems through activism.
The obituary includes a lot of information about the activism in his life, but does not list his experiences as a resume might have. The information is not attributed.
Aelony's wife, Karen, family, friends and fellow activists are quoted and attributed.
